...based on the traditional Thanksgiving side that is often shaped like a can.
Don't get me wrong—I grew up on cranberry sauce shaped like a can. I have fond memories of it, from childhood through college. In fact one of my most embarrassing (but amusing) moments of all time involve Thanksgiving cranberry sauce shaped like a can. This sounds like a total lie, but it's not. (I just tried to summarize the story in a sentence or two, though, and it can't be done...you'll just have to trust me.) 

But! This recipe is so simple, so easy, and takes hardly any time or work—which is always a bonus during the holidays.

The pears do a lovely job of sweetening the ever-so-tart cranberries naturally, and then honey does the rest of the work. Plus a hint of cinnamon, my all-time favorite secret ingredient.

                                                12oz fresh cranberries
                                                 2 ripe pears, cubed                                                                                                   1/2c. + 1 Tbsp. honey
                                                        1 c. water
                                                  3/4 tsp. cinnamon
                                     optional: 2-3 Clementine orange slices

1. In large saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently, until cranberries pop and the sauce thickens.

2. Adjust honey if needed. I usually start with 1/2c. and end up adding a little more.

3. Use a potato masher to blend all ingredients until it reaches desired consistency. Allow to cool before serving—although this cranberry-pear sauce is also lovely warm!
This can be made a day in advance and is just as good.

Your cranberry and pear sauce is a perfect combination. It is perfect for the turkey every holiday. That looks yummy and I will definitely try your version of it. Last year's Thanksgiving I used gravy and I am thinking of making a traditional sauce for this year. I hope that my family would like my idea because every year I serve turkey with gravy. I wish they will appreciate the slight change in the menu.

I love cranberries! They are the best fruit that ever existed in this world. Cranberries are rich in various healthy vitamins and plant compounds. Some of which have been shown to be effective against urinary tract infections. But due to their very sharp and sour taste, cranberries are rarely eaten raw. That is why, they are most often consumed in the form of juice, which is normally sweetened and blended with other fruit juices.
